Did the compressor lock up?

Yes its seized

83,425

It largely depends on your area. This is what you need to do if the compressor has seized: The system is full of tiny metal fragments from the compressor so it needs to be cleaned the expansion valve and dryer will be removed and the system completely flushed, then the dryer and expansion valve replaced along with the compressor and O-rings, everything will be 134a compliant, then the will be recharged with the proper amount of oil and 134a. Some vehicles will need an auxiliary fan installed just for the A/C. Out here this kind of job will run about 800 bucks to 1500 bucks. Every shop is different, if you don't like one estimate try another. As it is getting towards the end of A/C season you MIGHT get a better deal if you can wait till summer ends.
